Ontario has issued a new stay-at-home order today to fight an alarming surge in COVID-19 cases fueled by variants of the virus.
Ford says stores providing essential goods will remain open during the four-week period, but they will only be permitted to sell grocery and pharmacy items.
The province has also announced details about expanding vaccination.
It plans to roll out pop-up and mobile vaccination clinics in high-risk settingS, residential buildings, faith centres and big employers for adults 18 years of age and older in hot spot regions.
Next week will also see education workers in high-risk areas in Toronto and Peel vaccinated, as well as those who work with special needs students across the province.
